The Children’s Museum of Atlanta is coming to the library!
During the months of September and October, museum will bring programming to each of our branches. Come out and enjoy fun with Imaginator Scientists, which will help kids understand the features of the process of scientific inquiry in a fun-filled way. Or the Music to My Ears program, where kids will describe American culture by explaining diverse community and family celebrations and customs through a musical journey. Or maybe a fun cooking workshop – a fun, interactive and hands-on experience with cooking and learning about a rainbow of good foods!
Vote for the 2016 Milner Award winner at www.themilneraward.org
Congratulations to Mo Willems, 2015 Milner Award Winner!
The Milner Award encourages children to read by empowering them to select their favorite authors and then bring them to Atlanta for the Milner Award Program each year. School children and their teachers and media specialists have the opportunity to come to the free program to meet the author in person and hear them speak. The winning author is chosen by votes gathered both in the elementary schools and in the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System branches.
Here’s How it Works:
- Vote once for your favorite author
- Vote by ballot at your school or library or online at www.themilneraward.org
- Author must be living and cannot have won before (see list of past winners on website)
- The school with the most votes will be given front-row seating and one lucky student will present the award to the winning author for the fall program
